Important Things You Need To Know About Diabetes
  • Submitted By University of Chicago Medicine
    Kovler Diabetes Center

  • Diabetes is one of the most common serious
    complex health conditions that affect over 387
    millions of people around the world. It is a
    disorder in the endocrine system that is
    characterized by the impaired ability of the body
    to respond to or produce insulin which leads to a
    constant increase of sugar or glucose levels in
    the urine and bloodstream.
  • Diabetes is one of the most common serious
    complex conditions that affect millions of people
    around the world. It is a disorder of the
    endocrine system that can affect the whole body.
    Diabetes can cause critical health complications
    such as lower-extremity amputations, loss of
    sight or blindness, kidney failure, nerve pain,
    and even heart disease. It is characterized by
    the impaired ability of the body to respond to or
    produce insulin which leads to a constant
    increase of sugar or glucose levels in the urine
    and bloodstream.

  • This serious health condition has become
    increasingly more widespread because of the also
    increasing cases of obesity across the globe. As
    of the moment, there are already around 387
    million individuals both males and females of all
    ages who are suffering from diabetes. The data
    includes the estimated number of people who are
    still unaware that they are suffering from
    diabetes and who are not yet clinically diagnosed
    for such condition either at the diabetes center
    or in a clinical setting.

Type 1 Diabetes
Different types of Diabetes
5
  • The type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that
    needs insulin to treat. It is a health condition
    wherein the beta cells are being attacked and
    destroyed by the body itself. When the beta cells
    or pancreatic cells are destroyed, the pancreas
    cannot be able to function properly and it cannot
    also produce enough insulin.
  • People who are suffering from this type of
    diabetes is known as insulin dependent. Although
    the type 1 diabetes usually develops either
    during childhood or early adulthood, it can
    affect people of all ages.

2. Type 2 Diabetes
  • The type 2 diabetes, also popularly referred to
    as non-insulin dependent diabetes, is the most
    common type of diabetes. In fact, the diabetes
    specialist center has revealed that 90 to 95
    percent of diabetes sufferers in America are
    affected by type 2 diabetes. This type is
    characterized by insulin resistance or the body's
    inability to effectively use its own insulin.
  • People who are more than 45 years old are likely
    to suffer from type 2 diabetes. Your risk for
    type 2 diabetes also increases if you are
    overweight or obese if you have previously
    suffered from gestational diabetes, and if you
    have a sedentary lifestyle or you are physically
    inactive. A family history of diabetes and ethnic
    background are also risk factors for this type of
    diabetes.

3. Monogenic Diabetes
  • Only around 1 to 3 percent of diabetes sufferers
    in America are diagnosed with monogenic diabetes.
    It affects individuals at any age. Monogenic
    diabetes is a less common condition that results
    from an error or mutation in one of the over 20
    different genes.

4. Gestational Diabetes
  • As its name suggests, gestational diabetes
    affects pregnant women. It typically shows during
    the final term of pregnancy and usually goes away
    right after delivery. The diabetes center of
    excellence revealed that around 3 to 8 percent of
    pregnant American women suffer from this type of
    diabetes.

Common diabetes symptoms
  • The symptoms can vary according to the type of
    diabetes.
  • For type 1 diabetes, the most common symptoms are
    frequent urination, weight loss, tiredness,
    abnormal hunger, weakness, vomiting, mood swings,
    thirst, nausea, and high levels of sugar in the
    blood and urine.
  • People who are suffering from type 2 diabetes may
    experience skin infections, irritability,
    tiredness, blurry vision, thirst, frequent
    urination, nausea, and dry or tingling skin.
